services.exe restarts XP


I am unable to boot my PC this morning. When it boots up it comes up with a warning box which says The system is shutting down. The system process C:\\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073741819, it then restarts and the same thing happens again.

I have tried to boot into safe mode and the same error appears.

I also only have an XP recovery CD my machine came with, not an XP disk

Does anybody know how I can get into the o/s without having to use ther recovery CD to wipe the hard drive and reinstall?

Many thanks
